CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It's one of the countless Linux releases in existence, yet what differentiates it from all the rest is its long-term support, which ensures that you will always have a stable and protected Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that's much longer than with any other OS available. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so in the event you experience any kind of problem or have some questions, you can quickly get the data that you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it's very stable and protected, that makes it very reliable even when you host sensitive data. Because it is open-source, you are able to modify every part of it and customize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, since you won't need to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS
If you buy one of our virtual private server
plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the sign-up page. You will be able to decide to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, determined by the software that you intend to set up later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. When you'd like to have a VPS for a different purpose or if you want different software on it, you are able to order the server without any Control Panel and you'll obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you will enjoy a protected and reliable hosting service for all your Internet sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
You will be able to acquire CentOS with each dedicated server
which we offer, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options which you are able to select on the registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels that we supply, so that you'll be able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who want a powerful hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a single large account, while the other two Control Panels enable you to make a number of hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you're able to pick a server setup with no Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
